Hair Loss

Homeopathy often works well for hair loss because, unlike topical treatments, it gets to the root cause of the problem. However, please note that homeopathic remedies for hair loss should only be taken in consultation with a professional classical homeopath.

The normal stages of hair growth are the growth phase, the regression phase and the shedding phase. With male pattern baldness, the growth phase is shortened while the duration of the shedding phase remains the same, usually due to the action of the hormone dihydrotestosterone.

Causes for male pattern baldness can be genetic or related to other health issues. Smoking, alcohol and steroid use will accelerate this condition.

Homeopathy works by strengthening the hair follicle and corrects the hormonal imbalance associated with hair loss. Unlike standard treatments such as Minoxidil and Finasteride, homeopathic treatment is completely safe and has no side effects. Common homeopathic remedies for male pattern baldness include Lycopodium, Baryta Carb and Silicea.

Female pattern baldness in mostly related to genetics. It usually involves the gradual loss of hair from the parting line of the scalp. The most common remedies for female pattern baldness include Sepia and Natrum Muriaticum.

Scalp conditions such as tinea capitis, lichen planus, seborrheic dermatitis, folliculitis and dandruff can cause hair loss. Examples of remedies that can be used for these conditions include Graphites for tinea capitis, Arsenicum album for lichen planus, Kali Sulph for seborrheic dermatitis, Mezereum for folliculitis, and Thuja for dandruff.

Other health issues that can contribute to hair loss include thyroid disorders, menopause, PCOS, and diabetes. Emotional trauma such as stress or grief can cause hair loss. Hair loss is also a common side effect of many pharmaceutical medications.

Dietary deficiencies can also contribute to hair loss. Common dietary deficiencies that cause hair loss can include a deficiency in iron, b complex vitamins, zinc, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Lack of protein in the diet can also cause hair loss.
